9:35 and that concludes the first annual katie comes to boston american idol cinco de mayo swine flu live blog of american idol. thanks for reading (did anyone read?) group photo coming soon!
9:34 unofficial poll: jess miller – danny is gone. wife – kris. ste – kris. amy – kris. katie – kris but hopes it’s danny. lee – allison. I’m taking the underdog. 50-1 odds. that could never win.
9:33 there’s about to be a riot here. ste screwed up the tivo recording. cue the “serves ste right” comments.
9:31 Judges Reactions. randy = yo. yo. you guys are rockstars. that was the bomb. kara = rock god, rock goddess. paula = arh arh arh. perfect marriage. something tells me a marriage between these two might not work. simon = you win the show tonight. tivo just cut out. ste gold is about to be thrown off the balcony.
9:29 Allison & Adam. “Slow Ride.” Nope. Not going to work. It’s Dazed & Confused or nothing for me on this one. Katie things Adam’s tight pants are hot. So does Ste. I think it’s going to be a slow ride to the bottom 1 for Allison. Adam just touched his junk. Jess Miller thinks they should sing Meatloaf.
9:28 murmors that Kris is going to be gone. Danny doesn’t think he was as bad as the judges thought. sweet vest.
9:25 Judges reactions. Randy = it was alright for me. A+ for the effort. Kara = i’m 38 and hot. Paula = i don’t know if this was the right song for you. simon = last not was like watching a horror movie. good day.
9:20 Danny doing “Dream On.” Ste thinks it’s one of the best songs ever. That’s from the same guy that has a Britney Spears poster still hanging on his wall. The girls are up in arms that he’s wearing his wedding ring. Amy just got a tweet from Pete Bouchard. She’s most excited. Danny bringing it at the end. paula almost just popped a boob out.
9:17 Ryan – “you’re far too rich to have ice for lunch.” simon – “it’s made with mineral water”
9:15 judges reactions. randy = for me, i appreciate something. he loved the guitar. kara = for me, not a great performance. paula = kind of risky to do beatles. stopped listening to her a minute ago. simon = didn’t like. like eating ice for lunch. ahhahaha. the british are so funny.
9:13 we don’t think this is going well. Ste says Karaoke. Jess says “no artistry.” Ste can’t believe barry ditched this party.
9:12 Kris doing “Come Together” looking forward to this. Amy says the song makes her emotional. whatever that means.
9:11 and we’re back. had a little angel food cake and strawberries for dessert. good stuff. Kris up next. during the break Jess Miller wanted to know what Twiiter was all about.
9:00 we’re taking a break. dessert time.
8:58 judges reactions. randy = loved the harmonies. kara = sum of the parts better. paula = powerful. simon = danny better than kris. majority here disagrees.
8:57 girls (and ste) think Kris is doing better than Danny. I think they’re both doing well. Don’t think Allison and Adam are going to be able to match this one. Wonder what the ramifications of that are. Ste thinks Kris won the battle. Jess doesn’t think it’s a battle.
8:56 first duet in Idol history. just so happy i’m here to see it. Kris & Danny. or is that ste?
8:55 has anyone texted the word vote? just cracked a corona.
8:53 Katie reminding everyone that Allison said “it’s not like I sit at home and cut my wrists”.
8:51 judges reactions. randy = no good for him for me for him, kara = are you nervous?, paula = you’re fearless (editors note – huh?), Simon = liked it. maybe trying a bit too hard to sound like the original. interesting. 3 no’s and an ok.
8:50 ste likes allison. i don’t. we’ll see what the judges say.
8:47 consensus is allison looks gross.
8:45 judges reactions. ste loves kara. kara has a sick poof. paula claps like a seal. paula bout to pop a titty out. they all love adam. simon tells it like it is. one of his favorite performances. no one can top that.
8:44 ste is unsure what the song is. his face scares jess miller. pretty good. his haircut reminds me of todd from Wedding Crashers.
8:41 the girls are discussing why Allison looks so skinny? is it the stress? is it the anorexia? adam sings first for change. that’s nice.
8:40 Jess just said she’s dressed like fantasia barino. what do you think?
8:38 the show must go on. so must the blog. people think they can blog better and more grammatically correct than me. fuck them. jess miller just said she loves duets.
8:35 adam def in the bottom 3 last week.
8:34 swine flu in da house
8:31 Katie gives a speech. Discussing whether Adam was in fact the bottom 3 last week. People up in arms about how the picks had to be made.
8:29 About to Dim the Lights. There are swine flu masks available here.
8:20 still eating, but we’re now discussing the finer details of enemas. Just great conversation. someone just asked how does the water not come out your mouth? indeed. how?
8:15 still eating dinner. ste just tried on his new glasses. he looks like danny gokey. picture coming. jess miller in da house now.
8:05 Nobody we know watches any TV live. Times listed will not correspond to Idol performances. We watch when we want to watch and there ain’t nothing you can do about it. –SG
7:59 SteGold here taking over the live blog. We have some homemade margaritas made by Amy for Cinco de Mayo. We have dozens of surgical masks to keep the swine flu to ourselves. We have sweaty recently-yoga’d guests. And we have no fewer than four RSVPd individuals who either forgot, got “sick,” or are out drinking with other friends. Hell of a party. –SG
7:57 On the phone with Gelles. he thinks swine flu. not coming. party down to 6. –LS
7:52 Wife just said she almost choked on a lettuce sushi roll in high school. awesome. –LS
